How to Host a Stress-Free Holiday Party
Are you planning to host a holiday party this season? Don’t stress because we’ve got you covered! Here are 5 valuable tips for a stress-free holiday party:
Prep the Night Before
From putting up the decorations, to rearranging furniture for the buffet or dance floor, to prepping the appetizer and dinner menu, try to do as much as possible the night before the party. This will save you a lot of time and minimize the stress of hosting a holiday party. The ideal goal is to only have to bring out the dishes and drinks and put the final touches to your decor the day of your party.
Create a Schedule
This doesn’t mean you need to follow your schedule by the second, but create a rough time schedule for cocktail hour, then food, games and/or dancing. The last thing you want is for your guests to be standing around wondering when food will be served or when the dancing will begin.
Make fun holiday cocktails in large batches and serve it in a beautiful pitcher. This way your guests can pour their own drinks and you don’t have to bother with walking around with a silver tray attached to your hand.
